iTunes/iPad/iPod won't sort by song name
Suddenly a couple of weeks ago, my songs can no longer be sorted alphabetically by name. The songs are sorted by artist, then by song name. I've tried all the common sense steps on how to sort but nothing works. This occurs on iTunes Windows, iPod, and iPad "Remote" (controlling a mac mini with iTunes).
Please help! Is there some software or other fix out there somewhere?
Here's a video just so you can see I'm not doing it wrong: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BhmPLpgQ5uw
In the video, I'm following advice to click "View as List" then click "Name" to no avail. I also tried clicking other fields and then "Name", but the result is the same-- sorting by artist name first then song name.

Try restoring the iPad and iPod and deleting then reinstalling iTunes.
iPod Touch 4G - 32GB - iOS 4.3.5 (not jailbroken) - Macbook Pro (mid 2011) - iPad 1 - 64GB WiFi

Seeing as the iPad's player is a bit like iTunes, have you tried clicking on the "Name" tag at the top? Make sure the arrow is facing up for ascending order.
As for iTunes on PC, just look at the attachment picture.

On either iPhone or iPad, it sorts songs based on the Track number (#) for each Album. If you have songs with blank Track number under Track # menu item in iTunes, it will automatically give Track numbers and sort it accordingly on iPhone.
In iTunes, if the column is not shown, right click on the column name bar and select Track Number from the list.
On Windows PCs, folders which have your songs will show a column name '#' for Track Number.
One easy way to sort all the Songs in each Album is by making the Track # blank in each song. In iTunes, select all the songs for Album -> Right Click -> Select Get Info - > Select Info tab.
Type 0 on the two boxes underneath Track Number[0 of 0]. After you click ok, none of songs should have any number under Track # column.
Sync with iPhone/iPad. Now it will sort all the songs in that Album by Song Name in Ascending order.
Likewise you can do so on Windows PC folder. Select Album songs -> Right click - > Click Properties ->Click Details tab -> Type 0 on # item -> Click Ok
